RSS ChickletYou’re in luck — this podcast and blog is available as an RSS feed.

RSS delivers web content at your convenience — and the initials stand for nothing more complicated than “Really Simple Syndication”. The flow of that content from my site to your desktop is called a “feed”.

The Sparkletack RSS feed provides updates whenever I publish new content — all you need to do is tell your “podcatcher” or “feed reader” (the software which collects RSS content) where to look, and it will find deliver the latest post right to your digital doorstep. And you can tell it to stop collecting whenever you like.

iTunes, the 800 pound gorilla

Don’t have a podcatcher yet? Well, let’s face it: Apple’s iTunes is the most popular and conveniently available podcatcher out there — and it’s easy and free, and available on Mac and PC platforms.

If you already have iTunes installed, try this: click the following link, and the program will automatically open and take you to the “Sparkletack” subscription page.
